Mike was extremely responsive and helpful when we found that our boiler wasn’t working properly. He came out the same day, accurately diagnosed the problem and started the process of cleaning our central heating system (chemical flush to be followed up by power flush) which was needed to remedy the problem. We’ve seen an improvement in our heating system after a couple of hours and boiler is working again. Mike is very knowledgeable, explains everything and is friendly and polite. He quotes fairly as well and his prices are competitive. We will 100% use Mike’s services again and will also recommend him to other who need heating or plumbing services.

Exceptional service from quote to completion! Outstanding professional and high quality service. Very knowledgeable and efficient. Power flushed the existing pipework which was in a sorry state. Installed our new combi boiler and and renewed some outdated pipework to a radiator with no issues or drama. Overall I would highly recommend Michael (and apprentice) without any hesitation.

Mike recently successfully completed a refurbishment of our domestic heating system. For many years we contracted British Gas for all our heating system servicing requirements, spending several thousand pounds (£) in the process. Last year they (BG) performed a system flush and other recommended servicing requirements to improve our heat return outputs. The service they (BG) provided returned minimal improvements, with a parting comment that the entire system would need replacing in order to improve further.  As a last resort, in the depth of the cold snap [January 23] we contacted Mike to provide a short term fix. He came and took one look at our system and recommended a solution which he was confident would provide a long term fix. The following day he returned and started the process of cleaning and resetting the system. Immediately the result was heat in rooms which had been cold for the longest time. He recommended a change of filter to aid with self maintenance in the future, and applied chemical cleaning to deep clean the radiators. He advised that we leave the cleaning chemicals to do their work and he would come back in a month or so to finish the job. Good to his word he came back and flushed the system removing twenty years of built up sludge, until we had a clean running system ready for refilling with preservative chemicals. His workmanship and attention to customer service was of the highest quality. At every step of the process his customer communication was engaging and informative. I can highly recommend Mike for all your future plumbing and heating requirements.”

“THANK YOU so much for all the help !!!! Can’t recommend highly enough the effort Michael made for me. Turned up exactly on time stopped my boiler flooding my house and was back as soon as possible to fix the problem 5 star company and 5 star service doesn’t come any better x”
Judith McDonald

“I couldn’t recommend highly enough -he came out the same day to fix a E133 error on our boiler leaving us with no heating or hot water… Arrived on time, explained everything and even fitted some spare parts we had from a previous breakdown. A good, honest service and I would be my first call in a heating crisis in future!”
Nat Tyson

“Had Mike recommended by a friend for a gas safety check. He found by boiler to be unsafe, after it had been fitted incorrectly. He managed to fit me in asap knowing I’d be without hot water and the quote was much less than I anticipated! Would definitely recommend.”

Angela Pennington

“Thanks very much for installing my replacement boiler.  I was pleased with the quality of the work, and the minimal disruption while the work was taking place. The new boiler is more responsive than the previous installation, and I’m sure the higher thermal efficiency will mean cheaper bills!  I will engage you to carry out the annual servicing, and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to others considering having similar work carried out. ”

“Mike was an excellent fairly priced professional who delivered a bespoke bathroom transformation from rip out to rebuild in 7 days. Great communication and excellent skill. Would definately recommmend ”

“I Called Mike out due to a leak on our gas boiler, we had no water or central heating. Although it was the week-end he stated a time and was even early, he picked up a number of faults and explained what he needed to do, sorted the immediate problem and highlighted a couple of issues that he would come back to, we now have water and heating, cannot recommend him enough for his service and professionalism.”
